Lanka T20 League 2023 

Match 19: BK vs DA

 

Preview 

The 19th match of the Lanka T20 League 2023 will be played between B-Love Kandy and Dambulla Aura on Monday, 14th August at 7:30 PM. The R. Premadasa Stadium at Colombo will host the game. Both sides have qualified for the playoffs of the current season of the tournament and thus a thrilling contest awaits the fans. 

DA are the league leaders so far as they have won consecutive four games after they lost to Kandy on August 4. Their performance has increased drastically since that loss. In their last match against Colombo, Alex Ross and Ben McDermott were phenomenal with the bat while Hasan Ali starred with the ball in hand picking up three scalps in the middle stage of the game.

On the other side, BK lost their two inaugural matches in the league but changed their approach in the previous four games winning every one of them. With 81 runs off 51 deliveries in the previous match, Mohammad Haris was the centre of attraction but their middle order couldn’t stand up to their expectations which still remains a major concern for them.

Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at Lanka promises an intriguing contest, offering early movement for seamers with the new ball while favouring spinners as it wears down. Though turn is limited, slower bowlers can exploit the lack of pace. Once batsmen settle in, ample scoring opportunities await.

Expect a cloudy day with a slight 4% chance of rain, while the temperature fluctuates between a comfortable 31 and 26 degrees.

Match Prediction

Kandy have a 4-3 lead in Head-to-Head against Dambulla in the Lanka T20 League history. Both sides are the best-performing teams this season. BK is riding high on confidence based on the splendid all-round performance of their skipper. DA are more of a balanced side with better batsmen and bowlers. Thus we fancy the table toppers’ Dambulla Aura to win this match.
